Samsung’s affordable foldable phone confirmed for Indian market
We had exclusively revealed last week that Samsung is working on a cheaper foldable smartphone and that it bears model number SM-F415. A couple of days later, the device appeared in the Wi-Fi certification database, hinting towards its impending launch. Now, the South Korean tech firm has confirmed the existence of the device and that it will be launched in India.
Samsung has listed a support webpage for the SM-F415F/DS on its website for the Indian market, confirming the foldable phone. Samsung uses ‘F’ in the model number of its foldable smartphones. For reference, SM-F700, SM-F900, and SM-F916 are model numbers for the Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Fold, and the Galaxy Z Fold 2, respectively. The model number also reveals that the device will feature dual-SIM functionality, at least in the Indian market.
Previous rumors point towards a Galaxy Z Flip-like clamshell design for the SM-F415F. It could use the Snapdragon 7xx processor and a sub-$1,000 price tag. That’s everything that we know about the South Korean smartphone giant’s upcoming foldable device.
Samsung has already launched the Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Z Flip in India. It is also planning to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in India next month, and the device has been listed on the company’s website. However, there’s no information about the availability of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G in India.
